. jonathan is in new york. cannot win for losing. it is always tough for the moderators. >>jonathan: a dirty job but someone has to do it. whatever james -- jim lehrer does tonight he will be criticized. remember, the candidates in the republican primaries, we ask them attacking the moderators from the state. gingrich did it with wrong king of cnn and our own juan williams during the republican primaries. our senior political analyst brit hume has been in this position. here is his take on the job difficulties. >> you are at the center of attention but you don't want to be. you want the candidate to be the story, you want to facilitate that. you have to be firm enough and sharpen your questioning enough so it makes for an interesting debate and be careful not to cross the line to where it looks like you are favoring one candidate over another. >>jonathan: he says he things it is unlikely the candidates themselves will attack the moderator tonight because he says while that may happen in a primary contest it is far less likely to happen with these candidates trying to look presidential tonigh

. joining me now is erin mcpike, national political reporter for "real clear politics" and jonathan, writer for "the washington post" and msnbc contributor. thank you both for being here tonight. >> thank you. >> jonathan, if romney doesn't make a change, are we going to see more and more republicans jumping ship, in your opinion? >> sure. we've been listening to and watching republicans express concern about mitt romney since he became -- since before he became the nominee. he wasn't conservative enough. his ideas weren't conservative enough. once he got the nomination, those concerns started becoming louder and louder and ever since charlotte, since conventions were done and since president obama shot out of charlotte with the convention bounds, the alarms have been ringing louder and louder by conservatives. peggy noonan, rich lowry, bill crystal, all of these folks expressing extreme concern about this candidate and where he's taking the party and where he's taking the conservative movement. so i think if things keep going the way they are going, i think you can hit that fog horn button

the conflict began. "the fox report's" correspondent jonathan hunt life at the united nations for us again tonight. jonathan, the foreign minister's speech must have raised a lot of eyebrows in that place. >> to say the least, shep. it amounted to an argument that syria is involved essentially in a battle for survival of its government. it is a war of self-defense. the country has, in his words, been overrun by terrorists. and they are being aided, abetted, and encouraged by outside forces, including the united states. and the ones who are suffering most, according to the foreign minister, are the government and their representatives. listen. >> syria has lost thousands of marchers from among its military ranks and civilians as a price for its efforts to defend the integrity of the syrian state and its citizens in the face of this global terrorist campaign. >> the syrian foreign minister also said his government remains committed and willing to talk to all the opposition groups in an effort to find a solution. those opposition groups, not surprisingly, dismissed those commence -- comments

jonathan capehart and victor defrancesco and jamaal simpsons and national republican consul stant katon dawson. i'm taking professorial privilege here. we need to have a conversation on race all the time. but part of it is we need a conversation on what race actually is. >> it's a social construct nevertheless. it's a concrete pillar in the society. not just in the u.s. if you look at lat inamerica. they make the u.s. look weak. they have 16 different categorizations. we have to acknowledge that race has been with us since the founding documents. it's embedded in race. i think another document that keeps perpetuating race in our society, whether we like it or not is the census. >> yes. >> the census defines race. so we can't get away from it. we can't say we live in a racially colorblind society because we keep institutionalizing race. recently, there's a discussion of including latino as a racial category not just ethnic. create a whole new race in the next census. >> the notion that we can undo racism but undoing these data is also false. on the one hand, it's socially constructive. i

. these are the very people governor romney was supposed to be trying to get. >> cenk: i think jonathan had the best point. he said since he said it in private, people will give it more credence. so whatever he stays in public, they are going to discount. that's why it was devastating, because right or wrong, the american people thought that's the real mitt romney. >> jennifer: and then yesterday we have the tape of ryan coming out in a speech saying that 30% of america want a welfare state, do not want to achieve the american dream which is just a pile on of that same ethos of that half of the country, or 30% of the country -- >> ayn rand. >> jennifer: exactly right. i agree with eliot i think behind closed doors that he really does think that. i really think that that's how he believes -- >> eliot: can i add an footnote to that. it doesn't mean he is not a generous soul and a good compassionate person but he does believe that there is a big percentage of our public that doesn't aspire to work on its own. >> jennifer: i agree. >> cenk: one thing that got a little overlooked

report correspondent jonathan hunt joins us now. the iranian president accusing the israeli leader of war mongering. what was that all about? >> remember president ahmadinejab spoke at the general assembly last week before the israeli prime minister, netanyahu. this was in a sense, ahmadinejab's response and he responded as he so often does, by hurling insult after insult at the israeli leader and the israel as a country. in general, he mocked that cartoonish-like bomb, as you saw that prime minister netanyahu used as a visual prop in his speech and then mocked israel's threats to attack iran's nuclear facility. listen. >> my war, whoever talks of war is retarded. whoever talks of war is condemned. suddenly their psychological war is undermined, red lines and white line, black line and the like is for children. this is the level of this guy's character. it appeared that his drawing was not good. he got it drawn bay machine. his drawing will get better if he practices more. >> responses we are used to from him. he also went on to say that iran's nuclear ambitions are purely for peaceful pu

: jonathan on the democrat's line. caller: what i think of this story -- when i think of this story, i think of the last election. as you go on and on, you convince people there road is not important. i am -- of their vote is not important. i am an african-american veterans. it makes me feel good to our debate, for one. -- to participate, for one. i cannot imagine coming across this lady at an airport and she's saying, hey, i'm not a boater. the effort -- a voter. i would just have to walk away. like you are not involved. and most of the time those who do say they are not a voter, they have so much time to talk about the problems. i vote for you to have similar ideas to myself, but this conversation bothers me. it interests me as well, but it bothers me very much. a young lady lived next door to me and she turned 18 and i * was interested in voting -- and i asked her if she was interested in voting. she said note. -- no. host: jonathan, thanks for your call. guest: i do hope to run into you in an airport sunday and maybe we can have a chat. at the beginning of your comment, you said you vo

is a friend to my jonathan adler on my show frequently. a columnist, and i quote him. he has written a couple of great books about president obama and fdr. came on the radio with me. as said, hey. 878 billion. well, it helped the recovery. what did it by? well, we have made some improvements on rte. one in new jersey. he said that. i quote him. you know, the problem is, you can't point to anything. i begin to educate him and others about the works progress administration. in 1933 when the works progress administration was put into place by fdr it began to pay for things. it did it in a very unusual way. we will pay for 45% of anything you want to build right now. right now. state and local government got together and came up a long list of building projects that were genuinely shovel ready or which they would make sure we're ready . i . people often in my speeches. my first job of high-school. still open today. it was built with dollars and local dollars. i was talking about this recently was one of my law partner, tim cook. joseph timothy cut is from the jersey. the high-school was construct

will see a lot tomorrow. we're already planning that story for tomorrow's weather today. jonathan will have the third analysis piece will try to say mitt romney had a really good night tonight. by all accounts, what does that really mean? nine points behind in ohio. 10 points in virginia. how much can debate do to put a floor. i think it can do a lot to change the mood of whole campaign, donors, voters. one debate. one night. >> that is one of the big concerns i talked about earlier. look at "wall street journal" editorial page this morning often a very good indication where sort of the movement is in their assessment of things. both lead editorial and editorial by fred barnes who wrote a piece for them usually works for "weekly standard", both were very critical how this campaign messages and how they run ads. i think the big question will be can they take this moment, take whatever, whatever magic they had and can they bottle it up and then transplant it into advertising into stump speeches, into the narrative of the campaign? so far they have not been great at that. i would say the obama
